Additional Information

Antibiotics

Antibiotics (also called antibacterials), are a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. They may either kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as the common cold or influenza; drugs that inhibit viruses are termed antiviral drugs or antivirals rather than antibiotics. Antibiotics revolutionized medicine in the 20th century. However, their effectiveness and easy access have also led to their overuse. (source)
